The Alliance Road to Independence
Joseph M Fernando
Fernando, a noted Malaysian constitutional historian, uses recently declassified official documents to flesh out the role of the Alliance Party in convincing the British to grant independence to Malaya. He comes to the conclusion that independence was not handed to his countrymen 'on a silver platter,' as some have suggested, but rather nationhood was established through a mixture of tough negotiating backed up by public protest. 155 pages with an index.
